Private Tour: Winter Lake District Day Trip from Windermere
"My family and I had a wonderful day with Robin, our dedicated and friendly tour guide. He took us to see many lakes along our journey, including Ullswater, Windermere and Buttermere. We even got the chance to walk around Aira Force Waterfalls and received a good recommendation for lunch at a local pub in Keswick. He also took care to include several less-known gems such as the St John’s Well, and provided great insight into Lake District’s history with each landmark we visited. My family and I would definitely recommend this trip and Robin as the tour guide! It was a relaxing experience as the journey was personalised and flexible. We learned a great deal about the history of Lake District and its many charms, and have many beautiful photos to remember them by. We hope to visit again soon!"..."

Ten Lakes Spectacular Tour of the Lake District from Keswick
"We traveled in a small group (only 6 of us) from Keswick, with our tour guide Mark. Mark was well-suited to guide us, providing lots of details and information about the Lakes, the history, and the general area. We had lots of interesting stops, including the slate mine, Grasmere, a ferry ride on Lake Windemere (from Bowness), and ended up at Castlerigg Stone Circle. I know Mark can't control the weather, but despite some cloudiness, it was really quite good. Plus, just on cue, the sun came out at the Stone Circle. This tour is not strenuous and allows ample time for rest breaks, lunch, and photography. Highly recommend"..."
